    Many instances of Chrome in Taskmanager- only 3 t


    I've been chasing an issue that slows me down when I run Chrome, which is my browser of choice. Even when I open only a few tabs and close others as I do, it seems there remain many, many 'instances' of Chrome in Taskmanager!??

    I tried a fix for this of adding "-no-sandbox" to the target field in the shortcut I launch Chrome from.....Malware Bytes security sw seems to see that as an exploit and disallow it.

    Other ideas??
